Ocelot's Monthly Member Spotlight: Abbas Husain

For February's monthly member spotlight, we are featuring Ocelot member Abbas Husain/Bagman Studios. Members are artists and printmakers who pay hourly fees that allow them to use our full range of equipment.

ABBAS PRINTS MOSTLY: "I make bright, colorful, and humorous prints of animals and food. Usually I print smaller prints, 8.5” x 11”, with usually 3 or 4 colors."

ABBAS PRINTS # HRS/MONTH: "I am normally at Ocelot once a week for 3-5 hours at a time."

ABBAS'S FAVORITE THING ABOUT OCELOT PRINT SHOP: "My favorite thing about Ocelot is the helpful people who are always there, especially the staff. I hadn’t printed posters before when I started at Ocelot in August, and the staff were extremely accommodating in the learning process. They definitely helped me transform a dream and a hobby into profession.  The staff is always great at suggestions for a new technique or fixing a problem. The first few months especially, when I would do nothing but misprint everything."
